About me

Hello and welcome to my lifestyle & parenting blog

I’m Shante, an English Rose who moved to Cape Town from England in 2010. I married a very handsome South African and together we have two beautiful daughters, Rosie and Cece, and they are my muses..

The blog is my outlet for a lot of emotion and personal experiences; it allows me to share my journey, my awkward parenting moments and the things that I enjoy – I hope that it acts as a record for my daughters when they grow up.

It’s honest, raw, full of British sarcasm and reaches a predominantly female audience, living in South Africa and the U.K. and aged between 25-40.

Rose & Thorns houses my great loves – my family, food, travel, wine and living abundantly.
